What does an Education Manager do?

Education managers oversee the approach to instruction that is being provided at a school, college, training center, or other educational institution or organization. They assess the curriculum and the format in which it is being delivered, and also review the accompanying tools and resources. They often conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the existing tactics and methodology. They make recommendations for improvements or adjustments that could provide a better learning experience or improve the educational setting for both students and instructors, and supervise the implementation of any changes.

Education managers generally have at least a bachelor’s degree in education or a related field, although an advanced degree is an asset. They have a strong background in the education field, with roles that involve the evaluation and implementation of curriculum and other learning tools.
